"The secret place"

There is a place of safety. And it's always available to us.

Don't we often find that our experience largely corresponds to the quality of our innermost thoughts? If, for example, we are mostly concerned with material wants and longings— perhaps with fears of the future or the unknown—such obsessive interest tends to foster the negative conditions we are dreading.

On the other hand, if we are striving to pursue spiritual goals, our rejection of wrong impulses does bring with it the moral freedom and spiritual growth we are seeking. It may sometimes seem like a struggle to follow the path of spiritual aspiration, but Mrs. Eddy's words in Science and Health assure us that the effort is worthwhile. She writes, "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts." Science and Health, p. 261.
